Shame

Year: 1988
Director: Steve Jodrell
Cast: Deborah Lee Furness, Simone Buchanan, Tony Barry
Pretty harrowing dramatic rendition of a small country town and its response to the gang rape of a local girl, who suffers the usual blame retaliation by rednecked townsfolk. A lawyer/bikie (Furness) is determined to see justice and the drama culminates in a thiller-movie chase sequence.

Fairly bleak and awful subject matter throughout, with no happy ending and little to say on the sociology of sexual assault other than that our society (or maybe just small country towns) deal with it disgracefully.
